Five speakers talk about one of their favourite post-quake buildings and imagine another in a quick-fire celebration of words and the city. Taking the book Shifting Foundations: Postquake Architecture of Ōtautahi Christchurch as a starting point, they share their responses to a building they hold dear. Then, they turn to what’s missing and sketch out a longed for space, creating an alternative cityscape. First the building makes the storyteller, then the storyteller makes the building. Finally, the audience votes for their favourite building, real or imagined. Hosted by Ray Shipley.

Presented by Freerange Press and Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects (Canterbury Branch)
